HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A SAIL?

Usually 3-4 weeks. The sail cannot be made until the fixing points and posts have been installed.

 

WHAT ABOUT WINDS?

Our sail systems are designed to withstand 150 k.p.h. winds. As long as the sail is tensioned properly.

 

WILL ROOF CONNECTIONS MAKE A NOISE?

No. If the sail is tensioned correctly there should be no noise even in high winds.

 

IS MY SHADE SAIL SYSTEM WATERPROOF?

No. Shade cloth is not designed to be waterproof, although it does give some degree of water protection in light rain and if the sail is installed with a reasonable pitch. If you require a waterproof sail, this can be supplied, and generally fixing points and supports need to be stronger than for a standard sail.

 

DO I TAKE MY SAIL DOWN IN WINTER?

Shade sails are not designed to withstand the weight of heavy snow. For south Island installations we recommend that they are removed over the winter period. You can do this yourself or we will do this for you.

 

WILL IT FADE?

Most colours have an 8-10 year fade guarantee, however red may begin to fade after three years.

 

WHAT DOES A SAIL COST?

Every system is different. Price depends on the size of the sail, the number and type of supports needed. A professionally installed residential sail system is generally somewhere between $1,400 and $3,000.
